    New Zeiss 35mm Lenses 55+135mm work on HCam !

    Yesterday I had gotten the chance before the official opening of the last day of Photokina to speak to Dr. Nasse of Zeiss and put the new 1,4/55 on my HCam. It renders an Aptus 8 with 40Mpix (44x33mm) with very slight vignette in the corners.
    The new 2.0/135 is completely free of vignette and will probably render a full 80 Mpix Leaf or Phase.
    I will still need to get a 15mm Distagon Sample with removed sunshade from Zeiss to try with HCam (hopefully this will happen after Photokina).

    These new lenses do a have a large potential and are definitely worth any cent they will cost (a lot...).

    Regards
    Stefan

    Dear Stefan,

    Any chance you took some pictures with HCam?

    best

    Hi Stefan,

    cool!

    How's the resolution of the 55 if you took a 35 full-frame slice in the middle? Did you shoot it wide open? Are these just repurposed medium format designs or completely new lenses with higher-than-before performance?

    Can you see a notable difference compared to a Zeiss 50 1.4?

    Regards

    Paul

    I only did an image circle test out of hand to a white wall. There was only 20 minutes to go to the opening of the Photokina and we were talking about a list of image circle data for the new lenses. Dr. Nasse promised to supply this to me. as for a real resolution test I will try to do this after the Photokina and will probably drive to Oberkochen for this. I also want to see the 15mm with the lensshade removed plus some of the Cine lenses.

    I´ll keep you guys posted !

    regards
    Stefan
